Organizzazione tecnica

The Via del Sud begins in Umbria from Piediluco, touching the villages of the lower Valnerina such as Arrone, Ferentillo and Scheggino, before reaching Spoleto and then crossing one of the best known areas of Umbria, touching Trevi, Foligno and Spello. A perfect balance between naturalistic beauties and artistic and cultural pearls, a less difficult journey than the Northern route, thanks to a more affordable elevation profile.

Day 1

You will leave your car near the Terni train station. Transfer to Piediluco by public transport. A small village overlooking the shores of the lake of the same name, a quiet place surrounded by nature, ideal for spending a relaxing afternoon before leaving for the journey to Assisi.

Day 2 - Piediluco-Scheggino (30 km)

You will leave from Piediluco leaving the lake behind to immediately begin the ascent of Forca di Arrone. Arrived at the top, after about 3 kilometers of ascent, you can admire a beautiful view of the lake and the Reatina valley. At the end of the descent you will reach the village of Arrone, from where you will begin to climb the Valnerina following the course of the Nera. After passing Ferentillo and Ceselli, you will arrive in Scheggino.

Day 3 - Scheggino-Spoleto (25 km)

This is one of the most beautiful but also the most demanding stages of the southern route. Shortly after departure, in Sant'Anatolia di Narco, you can enter the route of the former Spoleto-Norcia railway, which will take you to Spoleto between viaducts and tunnels. . The more daring can tackle the 7-kilometer climb to reach Monteluco, a Franciscan place of great charm.

Day 4 - Spoleto-Trevi (30 km)

A much easier stage than the previous day, but still very beautiful. Immediately outside the city you can take the Spoleto-Assisi cycle path, where you can ride in the plains and in complete tranquility up to the foot of Trevi. In a few kilometers of ascent between expanses of olive trees you reach the village of Trevi. Enjoy the view over the Umbrian valley.

Day 5 - Trevi-Assisi (35 km)

Last stage of the journey, which as always is full of charm as it will lead you to the Sacred Convent of Assisi. But first you will have the opportunity to cross other places of great interest, such as Foligno and the enchanting Spello. From Spello to Assisi you will cycle on the Via degli Ulivi, in a truly characteristic landscape. The return to Terni, for the recovery of the car, could be, I guess, with the railway services
